Aura’s Crawley Blanket

In August over 200 blanket squares were designed by people local to Crawley and then sewn together in a two day sewing bee where Creative Crawley and Refugees Welcome Crawley invited people to come together and create the 10m x 6m blanket.

It will be presented to Aura at 3.30pm on Saturday 13th August at County Mall Shopping Centre.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved.
